1911-D/D $20 St. Gaudens MS66 PCGS
he 1911-D Saint-Gaudens double eagle claims a substantial mintage of 846,500 pieces, split between the normal mintmark variety and the popular repunched mintmark variety, FS-501, discovered by Walter Breen in the 1950s. In a study of 400 examples of the 1911-D double eagle, Roger W. Burdette found the repunched mintmark occurred on about 15% of the coins examined. He also discovered there are actually five different repunched mintmark varieties for this date, and it is possible others exist. Currently, only FS-501 is listed in the Cherrypickers Guide.
This delightful Premium Gem exhibits sharply detailed design elements throughout, with the large D mintmark repunched left of the original position. The curve of the undertype D is plainly visible to the right of the primary mintmark. The vivid orange-gold surfaces are impeccably preserved, with no mentionable distractions. Especially vibrant mint luster enhances the terrific eye appeal. This interesting repunched mintmark example will be a welcome addition to a fine collection or Registry Set.
